URGENT BUSINESS ASSISTANCE
Please do not think this is one of those scam or junk mails you receive in your mailbox/fax machine, which myself receive also, but I plead for your tolerance.
I got your contact address from the network online while browsing through website of business opportunities in your country.
My name is
MRS.. ROBECCA MARTINS the wife of late MR. JOE MARTINS of Zimbabwe. Let me quickly bring to your knowledge why I need your urgent assistance.
During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of our PRESIDENT MR. ROBERT MUGABE to claim all the white owned farms in our country, he ordered all the white owned farmers to surrender all their farms to his party members and his followers, my husband was among the rich black farmers in the country who stand firmly against the way the white farmers were being brutally maltreated, taking their farms without compensation.
This land problem came when PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE introduced a New Land Act Reform (NLAR), which wholly affected the rich white farmers. This resulted to killing and mob action by the Zimbabwean war veterans. In fact many people were killed because of the land reform act for which my husband was among the victims and after his assassination, the same Government burned our farm and residential building.
The only thing left for us is the sum of US$22,500.000 (TWENTY TWO MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS), which my husband deposited in one of the private finance security company in Johannesburg South Africa before his death, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe.
This money is protected in a big metal box and was declared to the security company at the point of deposit as precious valuables e.g., Gold, Diamond and Germ Stone to avoid the security company knowing that the contents of the consignment deposited with them contains cash. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of a new farm in Swaziland.
It is for this reason that I and my only son MR. MARTINS JUNIOR seek asylum in South Africa so that we can invest this fund as well. But since our arrival here, we have spent quite a fortune looking for how we can get through in order to clear this fund out of the security company, but all our effort were abortive due to the law of South Africa that prohibits a person with refugee status to operate a bank account or do any banking transaction of this magnitude. As the wife, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking for a genuine foreign partner that will assist us transfer this fund to his/her account for investment.
I must also let you know that this transaction is100% risk free and my family has agreed to give you 20% of the total money 5% will be for any expenses that may occur during the time of this transaction and 75% is for the entire family for investment in your country.
Upon your acceptance to this offer, you are strictly advised to reply through our family e-mail: email@example.com I will also like you to furnish me with your private phone number, so that we can establish that mutual communication. For more information, read on this website below:
Thanks as I expect your soonest response.
MRS. ROBECCA MARTINS
